Radboud Institute for Culture & History

The Radboud Institute for Culture & History (RICH) is a research institute that focuses on understanding the complexities of the past and present of Europe in a changing world. We research how texts, ideas, and cultural objects migrate across time and place and inquire into their roles in new contexts, for instance in maintaining or disrupting inequalities or by providing tools and strategies for coping.
